Wow, this is an old thread. thanks for all the nice words.
We're in New Jersey, but not the NJ you're probably familiar with. The very southern part of the state is pretty rural. I work for one of three "cities" in a rural county. Threre's just not much going on around here and High School football is a very big deal, at least in this one town.
And, no we didn't use aerosol cans. We used field paint in 5 gallon cans. Mixed 2 parts water to 1 part paint and sprayed with a hand wand from a 30 gallon riding field striping machine.
